The moment that we have all been waiting for. Our forever First Lady has written a book and we can not wait to pre-order! “Becoming” by Michelle Obama will be a memoir based off of her personal experience. The book will trace back to her childhood as a little girl on the South Side of Chicago all the way into her role in the White House.
Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the South Side found her voice. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story. https://t.co/d7DxEG85NK
According to the book’s web page, Becoming will also touch on her personal experience as a working mother and revolutionary woman.
“In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her — from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address,” a publishing brief reads.
“With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it — in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations — and whose story inspires us to do the same.”
It was also announced that Michelle and her publisher will be donating one million books to First Book, a nonprofit that provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need in the U.S and Canada.
We know this will become a bestseller and it will sit on their bookshelf alongside her Hubby’s upcoming book Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama which is also a memoir coming out with Penguin Rand House publishing.
